Public Landscapes make the diverse world of public horticulture prominent and accessible to all people. If you enjoy taking a stroll through the city, work for a corporation that sponsors a traffic island planting, or are a resident that takes pride in the large containers on your street corner, you have already experienced TheDCH’s innovative work. Your continuing engagement with the landscape around you is an important part of keeping Wilmington beautiful. Each day people inspire us in our mission of creating beautiful, sustainable, and captivating public spaces.
We partner with numerous local entities including individual community members, public agencies, and regional businesses to utilize our expertise in landscape design and implementation benefitting the most challenging urban grow zones. From traffic islands to sidewalks, TheDCH provides appealing plantings that boldly meet the challenges of urban and suburban life. At once hardy and context-sensitive, these plantings infuse the cityscape and park system with a unique beauty and character. Furthermore, we offer consultation services to those who want to lead their own community initiatives but may require extra support. Continue to look for our signs nestled among the roadside greenery as you explore an increasingly sustainable Wilmington!
